Hussain Sagar and its surroundings are providing unlimited entertainment to the people every Sunday in the name of Sunday-Funday. Taking it to the next level, the government is planning a Night Bazaar around Hussainsagar. Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister K Taraka Ramarao made the announcement in the legislative council on Friday.
HMDA is already making arrangements accordingly. Authorities have called for tenders to set up the Night Bazaar on an area of about 1,300 meters at an estimated cost of Rs 18 crore. Around 150 to 200 shops will come up there on the lines of Charminar Chudi Bazaar, Koti Badichowdi, and Sultan Bazaar. These shops, however, will have state-of-the-art facilities.
Most popular items from children to adults will be sold. Once the Night Bazaar is set up, the Government will announce the timings. While the government's efforts to better the nightlife in the city are laudable, there are people who are apprehensive about these plans given that the pandemic is still around the corner. Meanwhile, Bathukamma celebrations were held on Sunday as part of the Sunday-Funday event on Tank Bund.
